Many graduate students experience low confidence in roles as teaching assistants and instructors, as they suddenly find themselves in the role of the "expert", rather than the learner. In this workshop, we will first explore the common roots of this lack of confidence. We will then consider different ways of thinking and strategies that can help all of us to increase our confidence in the classroom.

When I first moved to Waterloo 3 years ago for my PhD studies, I didn’t know much about life in Canada. I decided to stay in residences for a term to be close to campus and to get used to the city, and then look for an off-campus options. But I enjoyed living in Columbia Lake Village (CLV) North so much that I never left after I moved in.

I have the unusual distinction of being the first person to be a finalist or selected speaker in all three major graduate research dissemination events at the University of Waterloo: Three Minute Thesis (3MT), GRADtalks, and, most recently, GRADflix. When I was told this, I joked that the University should come up with a name for this category, like the EGOT label used by the American entertainment industry for those who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.
